Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on the Environment. Task 53. Stormwater Treatment with Vegetated Buffer

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation has recently been issued a number of Water Quality Certifications by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) that require a "No net increase" for pollutants in storm water leaving a proposed facility. <span style="mso-bidi-font-size: 13.0pt"><span style="mso-spacerun: yes"> </span>To aid the applicant in meeting this requirement, DES has issued "Interim Best Management Practices (BMP) Guidance to Satisfy Loading Analysis." One concern is the applicability of the guidance to rural sections of highway where there is no proposed closed drainage system. The objective of this research proposal is to review the literature and other states' guidance to come to a common understanding of how highway storm water treatment is modeled throughout the country, share best practices and </span>develop guidance for effective storm water treatment on rural highways. </font></p>
